The Book of Pictures and Poems is from Mickeybear!

Guess what! The lovely book of poems and pictures I received a few days ago is indeed from my precious mancat, my darling Mickeybear. My heart is filled to overflowing! What a treasure. I'll cherish it forever!

And I thought I'd share some pictures of what the book looks like inside. The book is filled with poems Mickeybear wrote to me, and they are interspersed with pictures of the two of us!

It is laid out beautifully -- depending on the length of the poem, font sizes range from large to smaller, but everything is purrfectly lovely and easy for me to read. *smile*

Mickeybear, look at this -- you are snuggling with two of me! *giggle*

Oh, Mickeybear -- you make me swooooooooon...... you look so handsome lounging on your wall. I love reading your poems to me. They -- and you -- fill me with joy, peace, and contentment!

I especially love this picture -- Mickeybear, we look like we are snuggling together! And we are snuggling together, every day, in my heart and in my dreams.

Here's a picture of one of the longer poems. It fits beautifully on the page in its smaller font, yet it's still very easy to read.

*giggle*, Mickeybear -- the book contains so many precious memories, so many wonderful things we've enjoyed and shared in together. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, dear!

And I, your adoring Kittypie, look forward to sharing more fun, friendship, love, poetry, parties, and precious times with you in 2008!


We Ballicai have received two more beautiful Christmas cards! Here is the one that Adan and Michico sent. What a lovely picture of you, Adan! Thanks to you and Michico for your sweet card. What delightful friends you are!

And here's a card from Gretchen and Mike the Mysterious! Their card features a charming holiday poem about friendship -- how kitties might become friends with mice and lizards!

Mike, you're looking well -- I hope you have restful holidays and find yourself refreshed when you resume your world travels.

And dear Gretchen, precious friend of the heart and cousin and sister, you are looking stunningly beautiful -- I feel like you're here, snuggling and napping with me. Wouldn't a sistersnuggle be a wonderful thing! *smile*

We Ballicai will try to do some visiting, but we probably won't be able to blog again until after Christmas. So I want to wish everyone a lovely, happy, merry holiday season, and I wish you the happiest of Happy New Years in 2008!
